Your college experience is more than the classes you take and the credits you earn. At UNC Greensboro, you will gain skills and make connections that will last a lifetime.
Joining a Fraternity or Sorority adds value to your Spartan Experience.
Fraternity and sorority members serve as leaders throughout the campus community and beyond. Our members excel in the classroom, campus involvement, and community service. Through membership, you can build a network both locally and globally that spans not only geographic distance, but generations. Click below to learn more about the active chapters at UNCG.
UNC Greensboro Fraternity & Sorority Life exemplifies five pillars, common values that resonate with each of our organizations.
Our community values success in the classroom because we are committed to life-long learning and increasing the value of higher education. As we keep our sights set on the goals of our organizational and institutional founders, we honor scholastic achievement first and foremost.
Through focusing on leadership development, we better the UNC Greensboro and greater Greensboro communities. We commit ourselves to providing the resources necessary for members to enhance skills and abilities that will aid us in our future endeavors. Not only within our own societies, but the leadership that we exhibit in other student organizations and collegiate activities showcases us as a community that is a part of the bigger picture, not apart from it.
Respect for individuality and diversity serves as our foundation for creating a unified Fraternity and Sorority Life CommUNITY. The bond we share is not simply felt within members of one organization, but at our best rings true for all of those who share a fraternal experience on a common campus here at UNC Greensboro. To be united in spirit is to unite within the concentric circles of one’s own organization, council, community, campus, and society.
We acknowledge the importance of giving back to our community; therefore, we strive to strengthen the quality of life for those in need through our constant focus on philanthropy and civic engagement. Service is the UNC Greensboro motto. Our Fraternity and Sorority Life community consistently contributes thousands of hours and thousands of dollars to causes in Greensboro and beyond.
The rituals and traditions that we share with our brothers and sisters all over the world helps us better understand the importance of leaving a positive impression on our organization and our university. We are committed to maintaining the relationships created here as we move on to become engaged, successful alumni.
Joining a fraternity or sorority is a mutual selection process. It is important that if you are interested in joining a chapter at UNCG that you have a good understanding of the expectation of membership within that specific fraternity or sorority. Additionally, it is important that you feel comfortable with the chapter if they have expressed interest in you becoming a member.
The InterFraternity Council and College Panhellenic Council host a process known as formal recruitment, sometimes colloquially called “rush,” in the spring semester. Over the course of several days, potential members get to meet each of the organizations through a mutual selection process that ends in Bid Day, where invitations are extended. Organizations may also extend bids in the Fall semester and later in the Spring to potential members who meet the eligibility requirements.
The Multicultural Greek Council and National Pan-Hellenic Council handle membership intake on the individual chapter level. Interested students can start to get to know organizations and their members through their programs, events, and service activities. Each organization will publicize recruitment/rush weeks, informational meetings, and interest meetings for interested students to more formally seek membership. Organizations may seek to do intake in the Fall or Spring semesters.
To be eligible for membership, a student must have at least 12 post-high school credits and a minimum GPA of 2.55. These credits may be earned either at UNC Greensboro or another accredited college or university, so transfer students may be eligible upon their arrival.
Prior to receiving an invitation to membership (bid), you must complete the FSL Potential New Member Academic Disclosure Form that allows the Office of Campus Activities and Programs to verify your academic eligibility. This form can be completed below and your information will be shared with the chapter(s) that you have expressed interest in. Interested students should complete the PNM Academic Disclosure Waiver.
